Gold prices maintained an upward trend for the fifth-straight day by adding Rs 400 to regain the psychological level of Rs 28,000 per ten grams in the national capital Thursday on strong demand from stockists and traders coupled with marriage season off-take from consumers amid a firming global trend.

Silver also recovered by Rs 500 to Rs 45,500 per kg on increased offtake by industrial units and coin makers.

Meanwhile, gold prices continued their upward momentum in futures trade today and rallied by over Rs 650 points to regain Rs 27,000-level as speculators enlarged their positions tracking a firm global trend.

Silver also regained Rs 45,000-level in futures trade.

At the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX), metal for delivery in June contracts climbed by Rs 653 to Rs 27,041 per ten grams.

Similarly, silver for delivery in May contracts rallied by Rs 2,282 to Rs 45,174 per Kg.

In another benchmark spot market, Mumbai, gold reclaimed Rs 27,000 per ten grams level on continued physical buying.

Gold in overseas markets, which normally set price trend on the domestic front, posted best single-day gain of up to 2.5 percent since June last year, as rising central bank and physical purchases countered tumbling assets in exchange-traded products.
